“For many people on the autism spectrum, access to affordable assistive technologies is a prerequisite to being able to exercise their basic human rights and participate fully in the life of their communities, and thereby contribute to the realization of the SDGs. Assistive technology can reduce or eliminate the barriers to their participation on an equal basis with others.”
InTeaM4IEd Consortium welcomes you to InTeam4IEd project that aims to support teachers and tutors in dealing with developmental challenges associated with ASD students of post-secondary (initial) VET in the hospitality sector, as well as to assist them in acquiring expendable skills both within the education system and externally in the hospitality industry.
Inclusive education of people with Special Educational Needs (SEN) is often framed in terms of human rights or justice. Notwithstanding, the economic dimension for educating people with disabilities is also very relevant. Lack of appropriate education remains the key risk factor for poverty and exclusion of any person, whether they are disabled or not.
InTeaM4IEd will follow a step-by-step methodology based on the Plan-Do-Check-Act Cycle (PDCA) tocreate a ground-breaking Flexible and Hybrid Educational Methodology and Tools (F.H.E.M.T.) for teachers to assist ASD students in gaining new sector-specific competencies, and also an educational application, which will integrate the F.H.E.M.T., and the related operational guidelines for teachers, students and families.
